Kotak Mahindra Bank sacks employee for justifying Kathua rape and murder


A private bank in Kerala has terminated the contract of one of its employees after he posted an objectionable comment on social media about the eight-year-old girl in Kathua who was gang-raped and murdered last month, reports claimed. Nandakumar was an assistant manager at Kotak Mahindra Bank's Palarivattom branch in Kochi. Otherwise, she would have grown up and come back as a suicide bomber against India."Over 34,000 comments were posted on the bank's FB wall seeking his dismissal".

Nearly immediately, congratulatory messages began poring in from hundreds of users on social media but many pointed out that it seemed the bank was reluctant to give away the real reason for the termination.

The eight-year-old girl from a grazing family was raped and murdered at Kathua in Jammu region in January this year.
